About Coffee

Mr. Eckhard stated:

Let me tell you more about the history and culture of coffee today.

When I was a little boy, the history teacher at school told us many stories about coffee. It was then that young German students began to pass on the habit of drinking coffee from their parents.

He told us that the world’s first coffee tree grew in the Ethiopian highlands of Africa. It is a wild-growing plant, not grown through agriculture.

Shepherd’s Tale

Legend has it that 300 years ago, a shepherd named Kalid was the first to discover the natural power of coffee. Sitting in the shade, Kalid played his flute, composing new melodies almost every day. He does this in order to have his goats come to him every day before the sun goes down. One day, however, the goats didn’t listen to his music, and no matter what he played, they didn’t come back to him. So he went out to see what had happened to his animals. When he finally found them, he was surprised to find that his goats weren’t tired. Instead, they’re still running around, having fun, and even more energy than ever. When he looked more closely at the goats, he saw that they were chewing and eating the fruit and leaves of a plant. Therefore, Kalid also decided to try the fruit of this plant, and then he too became very excited, and it is said that he began to dance with his goats.

Kalid took the fruits and plants to a nearby monastery, where they boiled them, finding that the drink kept them awake and energized for longer.

story of arab monks

The story goes on, and one day, some monks who were collecting beans encountered a heavy rain and the beans got wet. To keep the beans from going bad, they dry the beans near the stove. After a while, they returned to the kitchen to find the smell of roasted coffee beans all over the room. According to this story, we can say that the monks discovered the process of roasting coffee beans by accident.

Later, in the 15th century, coffee officially became a part of Arab culture, and European merchants also began to import coffee beans to European countries, which started the journey of coffee’s rapid fame; the main import port of coffee was “MOKA”, which was later mixed coffee The origin of the name “Mocha”. Many businessmen became very wealthy from the coffee business, as coffee has become an important part of wealthy families in many Arab countries.

Later, during the Turkish War, coffee came to European countries and cities. When the Turkish army was defeated on the walls of Vienna, Austria, coffee made its way into the European market inexorably.

To this day, Vienna is still known for its unique café culture, where people meet every day to discuss business and events, or just sit and chat.

But I’ll tell you more in the next coffee stories…

About Coffee

爱咖德先生口述:

今天让我告诉你更多关于咖啡的历史文化。

当我还是个小男孩的时候,学校的历史老师告诉我们许多关于咖啡的故事。就在那时,年轻的德国学生开始从父母那里传承了喝咖啡的习惯。

他告诉我们,世界上第一株咖啡树生长在非洲埃塞俄比亚高地。它是一种野生生长的植物,而不是通过农业种植的。

牧羊人的故事

传说,在距今300年前,一个名叫卡利德的放羊牧民是第一个发现咖啡的自然力量的人。卡利德坐在树荫下,吹着长笛,几乎每天都在谱写新的旋律。他这样做是为了每天在太阳落山前叫他的山羊来找他。然而,有一天,山羊不听他的音乐,不管他演奏什么,它们都没有回到他身边。于是,他出去看看他的动物们到底发生了什么事。当他终于找到它们时,他惊讶地发现他的山羊并没有累。反而,他们还在跑来跑去,开心地玩耍,甚至比以往更有活力。当他更仔细地观察山羊时,他发现它们正在咀嚼和吃一种植物的果实和叶子。因此,卡利德也决定尝试一下这种植物的果实,随后,他也感到格外亢奋,据说他开始和他的山羊一起手舞足蹈起来。

卡利德把这些果实和植物带到附近的修道院,在那里他们煮了这些植物和水果,发现这种饮料可以让他们保持更长时间的清醒和活力。

阿拉伯僧侶的故事

故事还在继续,有一天,一些收集豆子的僧侣遭遇了大雨,豆子被弄湿了。为了防止豆子变坏,他们把豆子放在炉子附近晾干。过了一回儿,他们回到厨房,发现房间里到处都是烤咖啡豆的香味。根据这个故事,我们可以说,僧侣们是偶然发现了烤咖啡豆的过程。

后来在15世纪,咖啡正式成为阿拉伯文化的一部分,欧洲商人也开始将咖啡豆进口到欧洲各国,开启了咖啡的快速成名之旅;咖啡的主要进口港口是“MOKA”,这就是后来的混合咖啡“摩卡”名字的由来。许多商人因咖啡生意变得非常富有,因为咖啡已经在许多阿拉伯国家的富裕家庭里占据重要地位。

后来,在土耳其战争中,咖啡来到了欧洲国家和城市。当土耳其军队在奥地利维也纳的城墙上被击败时,咖啡却不可阻挡地进入了欧洲市场。

时至今日,维也纳仍以其独特的咖啡馆文化而闻名,人们每天都在这里聚会,讨论商业和活动,或者只是坐在一起闲聊。

但我将在接下来的一个个咖啡故事中告诉你更多……

请与朋友分享,并跟随我了解更多关于咖啡的故事和我与咖啡的个人经历。
